Animal-Planet

[16:25] <SavanahHolland> Wendy walks through the halls, finally having gotten some free time to visit Twelve and teach her a few life skills, or something of that sort. She walks up to what she knew to be twelves room and gives it two knocks, as she has done with all her friends.

[16:26] <Piper> There is a moment of silence from within followed by the sound of shuffling, and then… Two knocks are returned from the other side of the door.

[16:28] <SavanahHolland> Wendy almost giggles, remembering that Twelve probably doesn't understand the meaning of it, which is one of the things now on her list to teach her. "Twelve, open the door please." she says with a laugh, Twelve already having much to learn about the world around her and the people in it.

[16:31] <Piper> The door is opened without hesitation, the order having been received, understood, and implemented. Wendy is greeted by the site of Twelve's very bare room as she owned nothing, and the girl herself standing dressed in Rose's way-to-big pajamas. "Wendy." She confirms and smiles softly.

[16:33] <SavanahHolland> Wendy smiles back, seeing the girl in oversized clothing reminding her of herself. She walks into the room, making sure to not intrude completely. She appears to have a thing book between her arm, though most of it obscured. "Hello! I came here to teach you some things." She looks to twelve, almost ready to explain everything she just said, having a teachers mentality.

[16:36] <Piper> Now that Wendy was inside Twelve's room she would notice the bloody handprints on the wall and dresser and bed… no wait, that was straberry jelly, also a little blanket nest made up in the corner. Seems the bed was a little strange for her. "Okay." Twelve answered, and then stood motionless, looking at Wendy expectantly.

[16:39] <SavanahHolland> Wendy looks around the room, pointing to the strawberry jelly stains with a giggle "I'll help you clean that later." She then plops herself on the mostly unused bed, patting the seat next to her "Twelve sit here next to me." she then unfurls the book on her lap titled just 'Animals' it appears to be a picture book meant for small children.

[16:40] <Piper> Twelve does as commanded, sitting beside Wendy, her crimson eyes drifting down to the book in the girl's lap.

[16:44] <SavanahHolland> Having gotten the idea after Twelves encounter with the squirrels she turns through the pages, not letting Twelve see the other ones that she passes. Turning to a page labeled 'Squirrels' in big bold letters with a picture of a squirrel in the middle, looking almost identical to the one she had ecountered with jackie. She uses her free hand to cover the smaller text on the bottom, not needing for twelve in this lesso
[16:44] <SavanahHolland> n. She points to the picture "Do you remember what I told you this was called?"

[16:46] <Piper> "Squirrel." Twelve really was quite smart, just ignorant on most things. She has an excellent memory, and learns new concepts quickly. After a couple of seconds though she adds. "This one has no hat."

[16:47] <SavanahHolland> Wendy nods "Yes, most Squirrels don't have hats. I made that for them, wild squirrels don't wear them." she then adds on "Anything you want to ask?"

[16:50] <Piper> Twelve considers the question for a moment before shaking her head. She could not think of any questions to ask about squirrels.

[16:52] <SavanahHolland> Wendy smiles, then turning the page for a picture of a real rabbit, pointing to it and covering the small text much like the last one "That is a rabbit, the one you held yesterday was a stuffed rabbit, meaning it wasn't living and it was made by someone."

[17:00] <Piper> Twelve studied the picture for a moment and then turned, crawling over the bed and hopping down to the floor and her little nest where she fished out the stuffed rabbit and climbed back into her sitting spot. She then held the rabbit out to compare it to the picture. "Stuffed means it is not livving and it was made by someone."

[17:02] <SavanahHolland> Wendy nods "Yes, someone took fabric." She pulls the fabric of her sweater for Twelve to see "Like this, except white, and stuffed it with cotten." she quickly thinks for a moment "Cottom is fluffy stuff that fills things" She looks to the rabbit "That stuffed rabbit is filled with fluffy cotten."

[17:04] <Piper> Twelve's eyes stare attentively at each item Wendy uses to explain. "I do not know this. Fluffy. What is fluffy?"

[17:06] <SavanahHolland> "Fluffy is something soft." She picks up a pillow from twelves make shift bed, giving it a squeeze with her hand and giving it to Telve "This is something you sleep with, called a pillow and it is fluffy like the cotton inside the stuffed rabbit."

[17:07] <Piper> "Fluffy is soft." Twelve smiles. "I like soft. I like fluffy."

[17:08] <SavanahHolland> Wendy giggles "Fluffy things are nice" she then pauses "Any questions about rabbits or anything else?"

[17:12] <Piper> Twelve shakes her head "No. I know about rabbits. Rabbits are fluffy."

[17:15] <SavanahHolland> Wendy nods with a smile, then turning the pages a bit farther past moles and ferrets to a page in middle about cats, she looks to Twelve "Do you remember this from yesterday?" she points to the picture

[17:17] <Piper> "Yes. I know this. This is a cat. The cat yesterday was Olive. Like I am Twelve, but Olive." No one better ever say anything they don't want repeated around Twelve…

[17:18] <SavanahHolland> Wendy smiles brighter "You're smart Twelve, did you think Olive looked fluffy?" She giggles

[17:19] <Piper> "Yes. Olive looked fluffy. The squirrels also looked fluffy."

[17:22] <SavanahHolland> Wendy looks to Twelve "All the things i've shown you so far are called animals, there are many pictures of different types of animals in this." she points to the book in whole.

[17:25] <Piper> Twelve considered this concept, the small fluffy creatures were animals. "Like you and me are humans. Cats and squirrels and rabbits are animals."

[17:27] <SavanahHolland> Wendy seems brilliantly excited by Twelves answer "Yes! They are animals like we are humans. Some animals, like rabbits and cats, are kept as pets. Pets are animals that you keep with you and take care of, though some animals cannot be pets."

[17:28] <Piper> Twelve lets the new bit of information process for a minute and then held up her stuffed rabbit. "This is a stuffed rabbit. This is my pet?"

[17:29] <SavanahHolland> "Most pets are alive and not stuffed with cottom, though you could say it is yours. If you wanted to keep it you would say it is your stuffed rabbit instead of your pet."

[17:35] <Piper> "Oh. Pets are animals. Pets are alive." Twelve considers this for a minute, and then looks up at Wendy. "Olive is your pet?"

[17:37] <SavanahHolland> "Olive is Jackies pet, because she takes care of him, like feeding him and bathing him." She says in a almost teacher like matter, though still keeping pleasent and enjoying her time.

[17:41] <Piper> "Olive is Jackie's pet." Twelve repeated and then smiled.

[17:42] <SavanahHolland> Wendy places the book in twelves lap "Find a picture in here of a animal you like, and i'll tell you about it." she giggles

[17:47] <Piper> Twelve sets the stuffed Rabbit between them and then tugs her extra long sleeves up on the pajama top so that she has use of her hands and then cracks the book open to S-Spider where a lovely picture of a red-knee tarantula spread out across the pages. She tilted her head, noticing the hairs all over the arachnid. "Fluffy. What is this?"

[17:52] <SavanahHolland> Wendy looks to the large spider on the pages, then manages a giggle "It's a spider, though some are dangerous. There can be big spiders, and small spiders." She then points to the picture "That's a big spider."
[17:53] <SavanahHolland> As she says this she peeks at the small text on the bottom of the pictures, having not known about many spiders,

[17:55] <Piper> Twelve traces the many legs of the spider and points at its eyes. "Spider. Spiders have a lot of parts…. How do they hear? Spiders have no ears." She looked up questioningly.

[18:00] <SavanahHolland> Wendy read farther, finally finding what she needs to know "Spiders do not hear like you and me." she giggles giving twelves ear a poke "They hear with their movement and feelings of a room, I think?" she tries to think of a better way to phrase it.

[18:01] <Piper> Twelve considers this. "They hear with their feet?"

[18:02] <SavanahHolland> Wendy thinks "Do you know what vibrations are?"

[18:06] <Piper> Twelve pauses, something about vibrations tugged at her memory, something the doctor had told her once though she could not remember enough of what was said to give a definition to the word. She simply shook her head. "No. I do not know this."

[18:07] <SavanahHolland> Wendy stands up, then moves Twelve off the bed, taking a step backwords and jumping on the bed. The matress shakes slightly and Wendy giggles "That is a vibration."

[18:09] <Piper> "Jumping on the bed is a vibration." Twelve also jumps onto the bed, landing on her knees and bouncing gently before smiling.

[18:10] <SavanahHolland> Wendy giggles "Yes, there are some things that vibrate, though that doesn't mean you should jump on everything." she laughs "Spiders hear from vibrations of a room, there are other things they can use to 'hear' but that seems like the best way to explain it."

[18:15] <Piper> Twelve smiles and takes up the book again, opening up to another page. A bird. She studies it for a few moments before asking. "This has flat arms."

[18:15] <SavanahHolland> Wendy nods "That animal is a bird, it doesn't have arms. It has wings, wings are things it uses to fly in the air."

[18:18] <Piper> "I know this. Fly. Number Three could fly, but number Three did not have wings."

[18:18] <SavanahHolland> Wendy thinks "Then how did number three.. fly?"

[18:22] <Piper> "I do not know this. Number Three would fly, but I do not know how. Doctor Becker cut him open to see how, but he did not grow back."

[18:24] <SavanahHolland> Wendy looks down "Well these birds, don't need to be cut open because we know that they fly by flapping their wings."

[18:28] <Piper> "I do not know this. What is flapping?"

[18:29] <SavanahHolland> Wendy uses her hand stopping at the wrist to mimic a flapping motion "Birds do this with their wings, the wings they are born with are made to fly like that though" she laughs "So you flapping wouldn't make you fly."

[18:32] <Piper> Twelve 'flaps' her hands as well, observing the motion with a serious expression. "Flapping."

[18:32] <SavanahHolland> Wendy giggles "Yes that is flapping, anything else you want to know about birds? Or how they fly?"

[18:34] <Piper> She tilts her head and looks at the picture for a moment. "Birds do not have ears. Birds hear from vibrations?"

[18:36] <SavanahHolland> Wendy giggles "No, birds can hear, you just can't see it." she plays with the tip of Twelves ear "They don't have this part, just the hole."

[18:38] <Piper> Twelve squeaks and winces at the tickling of her ear and then cups her hands over her ears and tugs on the outer part while looking at the bird. "Are birds pets?"

[18:39] <SavanahHolland> Wendy nods "Some birds can be kept as pets, some birds can even be taught to repeat words! Though they're not quite as fluffy as a cat."

[18:46] <Piper> Twelvenodded and continued looking through the book, flipping through pages from back to front and studying each one until she got to the crocodile. "This. I know this. I was eaten by this."

[18:57] <SavanahHolland> Wendy looks almsot frightened by the idea of twelves being eated alive by this animal, she musters out sadly "That's a crocodile.. There aren't any around here so none of them will eat you, Even if there were none of us would let it." she manages to give twelve a worried smile.

[19:01] <Piper> Twelve looked up with her usual plain expression. "Crocodile." She repeated and then looked back at the picture. "It died when I grew back. I was an…" What had the doctor called it. "Obstruction."

[19:03] <SavanahHolland> Wendy lets out a weak breath, giving Twelve a small hug and shakes her head "The crocodile is a animal, an obstruction is something that would get in the way of someones path." she shivers slightly, still holding on to the girl.

[19:06] <Piper> Twelve is hugged. It was a strange gesture to her, but not an unwelcome one. It made her feel warm and she liked warm and soft. "Yes. I grew back in the crocodile's neck and was an obstruction. The air could not go down its neck path and so it died."

[19:08] <SavanahHolland> Wendy hugs twelve tighter "Nothing like that will happen to you again here.." she lets a silence for a moment "Twelve this is called a hug, people do it because they want to comfort the other person, do you like it?"
[19:11] <Piper> "Yes. I know this. Rose hugged me after she tickled me. Akemi hugged me. I like this, hugs."

[19:12] <SavanahHolland> "You can hug people too if you'd like, most people like hugs." Wendy smiles slightly "Any questions?"

[19:14] <Piper> Twelve considers Wendy's words for a moment before shaking her head. "No. I have no questions."

[19:15] <SavanahHolland> Wendy then thinks for a moment, placing her chin on Twelves head stil holding on to her "Twelve, do you want to know more about strawberries?"

[19:18] <Piper> Twelve pauses and blinks, then tilts her head up to where she can see Wendy's eyes. "There is more to know about strawberries?" What more to know was there? They were the most amazing thing ever!

[19:19] <SavanahHolland> Wendy smiles "Well you can make them into many different things, like the strawberry bread, or the strawberries tart I told you about."

[19:20] <Piper> "Yes. I know this. Strawberry bread is good. I have to take a bath after I eat it."

[19:21] <SavanahHolland> She then giggles "Well next time I'll make you you have plenty of napkins so you don't get strawberries on you." She thinks for a moment "Do you know what seeds are?"

[19:23] <Piper> Twelve thinks for a moment. This was another word that had a vague familiarity to it, something from her past that was too sparsely used or too long ago to hold solid meaning. Eventually she shook her head. "No. I do not know this."

[19:26] <SavanahHolland> "Well seeds are these little tiny things that can be planted in the grown to make a plant, like a flower. There are strawberry seeds, which you plant in the ground." Wendy waits for the girl to comprehend it before continuing

[19:33] <Piper> Twelve's little head hamster spun its wheel for a minute before she put several concepts together. "Rose is a flower. Can we plant seeds and make more of her?"

[19:35] <SavanahHolland> Wendy giggles "Rose is a name, like twelve is your name. A rose however is also a flower, but that does not make Rose as a person a flower."

[19:38] <Piper> It takes her a minute or two to process that information, and she almost seems disappointed in herself that she didn't put that together. Must be tired. "Yes. I know this." She thinks for a moment longer and then looks up at Wendy. "Rose and Akemi and Fonyx are my friendship. Do you want to be a friendship for me?"

[19:40] <SavanahHolland> Wendy giggles "Of course! We are friends, just like Rose, Akemi and Phony are your friends." She smiles brightly at the girl "I hope we stay friends too, then maybe when summer comes we can grow a strawberry plant together!"

[19:41] <Piper> "Yes. I would like this."
